IE Venture Network Weeklies Madrid

EVERY THURSDAY SINCE 2011. Pioneering Entrepreneurship.

Join IE Venture Network Thursday, March 3 2016!

Venture Network, an informal weekly pitch slam, is an invaluable resource for early stage entrepreneurs. Venture Network is a forum in which you can engage with the entrepreneurial community, promote your startup, and have the opportunity to pitch before a panel of investors & entrepreneurs. Venture Network is unique in that it is a very informal gathering where startups can meet investors in a casual setting over beers and snacks and focus on what’s important: building relationships. Venture Network is a great way to perfect your pitch, get feedback on your product, and meet the local startup community.

Venture Network's jury this week includes:

The Belgian Brewery, Matthieu Pinet

The Belgian Brewery is a provider of homemade brewing kit, allowing people to brew their own beer home. We offer premium amateur Belgian Beer to be made. On top of the brewing experience, what we sell is more: a coo gift, a fun experience and lots of great moments with family and friends altogether, brewing and then tasting your homemade beer.

Watanoo, Constance Piat & Mikael Gross

Watanoo is a start up which offers a C2C platform to its clients, independent workers, that enables them to fill in their agenda on their terms and according to their schedule using immediate geolocation.
